As Mark and Dan Tuley were testing their Bad Ass marinade on all kinds of meat, hunting friends began taking a huge interest... because many hunters have a problem. They want to eat the meat they hunt, but they or their families don't like the stronger taste of game. 

Tuleys Bad Ass Marinade solves this problem. 

The Tuley brothers' partner Deron Hawkins, who is an avid hunter, recognized it for the goldmine it was, because nothing he'd tried worked so well to tame and tenderize venison. He even got his venison-hating wife to try a backstrap steak cooked with the marinade. She not only ate the whole thing, but asked for seconds. Now his kids like it, too.

Another friend got a group of kids to chow down on venison even after he told them they were eating Bambi. 

A fisherman friend brought some strongly-flavored triggerfish from the Gulf, and the marinade took away all traces of fishiness. 

Every hunter that has tried the marinade with wild game is thrilled with at how well it works not only to tenderize and moisturize lean meat which can so easily become dry and tough, but how it tames the taste of game to the point that literally everyone loves it. 

Hawkins has tested the marinade with wild meats of all kinds. He especially enjoys cutting steaks from the deer's backstrap, soaking them for 8 hours in Bad Ass Marinade, then simply grilling with a little pepper. 

He's used it to marinate cuts from bison, elk, and wild boar. He's even used it to flavor dove breasts (soak these little delicate morsels only an hour) before wrapping them in bacon and grilling, and—get this—he's marinated fresh gator tail in Bad Ass Marinade and grilled that for a crowd of 45. They decided it tasted like chicken, only sweeter, with the texture of a pork chop, and everybody loved it.
